I came to Dr. Nasseri with Recurrent Pregnancy Loss and for trying for over a year at age 39. After a very comprehensive diagnostic work up, we discovered that I had uterine adhesions which required an operative hysteroscopy, to rule out that the adhesions were the cause of my miscarriages.... Dr. Nasseri is very intelligent and presents information in a very clear cut manner; in the beginning he came across as cold. However, as I have continued to see him, he has warned up and become more “human"

How was your experience with Ali Nasseri at Valley Hospital Fertility Center?
Dr. Nasseri is everything I would look for in a Reproductive Endocrinologist. He is thorough and has a good bedside manner. He is also very creative when it comes to finances and helping us to identify a treatment that will fit within the bounds of our budget. While we have done one surgery with him and are just in the midst of our first cycle with him, I feel comfortable saying that we will be with him until the end of our fertility journey, wherever that may take us.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ali Nasseri at Valley Hospital Fertility Center?
Be sure to have a list a questions; while Dr. Nasseri is very attentive, I had to clarify several things in the beginning of this process. It was helpful to have that list in front of me.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ali Nasseri at Valley Hospital Fertility Center?
Dr. Nasseri is very intelligent and presents information in a very clear cut manner; in the beginning he came across as cold. However, as I have continued to see him, he has warned up and become more “human”. He performed an operative hysteroscopy on me and made me feel very at ease prior to the procedure.
Describe the protocols Ali Nasseri used in your cycles at Valley Hospital Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I came to Dr. Nasseri with Recurrent Pregnancy Loss and for trying for over a year at age 39. After a very comprehensive diagnostic work up, we discovered that I had uterine adhesions which required an operative hysteroscopy, to rule out that the adhesions were the cause of my miscarriages. Dr. Nasseri has made the recommendation that we go straight to IVF with PGS testing to identify the highest quality embroyos but for financial reasons we are not able to move forward with that treatment at the moment. Instead we are doing a medicated cycle with IUI.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff at Valley Fertility Center are excellent. If you call with a question or concern, they get back to immediately and always within the same business day. They are compassionate and though they deal with a lot of patients, they remember me and call me by my name at each visit.
Describe your experience with Valley Hospital Fertility Center.
The clinic has, thus far, been really easy to work with regarding scheduling. I’ve had to change an appointment or two for work and it was never issue. The clinic has monitoring hours every morning and it is a very quick in and out visit. My advice to new patients is to get there early; it is a first come first serve basis.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ali Nasseri at Valley Hospital Fertility Center.
Some things were covered by my insurance. Some not. I have not tallied up the money we have spent there yet as we are just beginning out treatment.
Describe Ali Nasseri's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Valley Hospital Fertility Center.
I have not gotten to that stage of the process but it is my understanding that Dr. Nasseri and his staff prefer single embryo transfer.

In the beginning of this process, I did feel like we were a number but most recently, Dr. Nasseri came up with an alternative treatment for us because we cannot currently afford IVF. I felt like he really worked with us as a couple and provided us with the best option that we can move forward with right away.... due to my wife's recurrent pregnancy loss, I had to have a full blood workup, genetic testing, karyotyping and semen analysis. At the end of the day, everything was "clear" on my end so aside from recurrent pregnancy loss, we are stuck in the grey area of "unexplained infertility"

How was your experience with Ali Nasseri at Valley Hospital Fertility Center?
While I have not had to go through all of the procedures that my wife has had, I have had to undergo some testing and I felt like everyone was explained to me in a pretty clear manner. For my experience, I had to deal with the nursing staff much more closely than Dr. Nasseri.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ali Nasseri at Valley Hospital Fertility Center?
For me, it would have been helpful to get a more detailed rundown of all of our fertility options in the beginning - everything from Clomid, to IUI, to IVF. I would have asked more questions upfront.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ali Nasseri at Valley Hospital Fertility Center?
In general, I feel like most fertility clinics are just trying to recruit as many patients as possible. In the beginning of this process, I did feel like we were a number but most recently, Dr. Nasseri came up with an alternative treatment for us because we cannot currently afford IVF. I felt like he really worked with us as a couple and provided us with the best option that we can move forward with right away.
Describe the protocols Ali Nasseri used in your cycles at Valley Hospital Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Personally, due to my wife's recurrent pregnancy loss, I had to have a full blood workup, genetic testing, karyotyping and semen analysis. At the end of the day, everything was "clear" on my end so aside from recurrent pregnancy loss, we are stuck in the grey area of "unexplained infertility". We are currently undergoing our first cycle with Clomid.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I have dealt with the nursing staff the most. Every nurse is so nice and warm. Always making jokes and keeping you at ease. I would definitely recommend them as a team.
Describe your experience with Valley Hospital Fertility Center.
I'm not sure if this is a weakness specific to our clinic, but I feel like the diagnostic process took a long time. And unfortunately we still have no solid "answer". I have never had an issue getting an appointment with the clinic so that is a definite strength.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ali Nasseri at Valley Hospital Fertility Center.
I'm unsure of the costs associated with our care. I do know that we currently cannot afford IVF at the moment. I believe that is estimated around $12000 before medication.
Describe Ali Nasseri's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Valley Hospital Fertility Center.
I'm not familiar with the doctor's approach to single vs. multiple transfers. We have not gotten this far in the process.

He [Dr. Nasseri] was very straightforward with what my options were and the likelihood of success...If you need someone who is extremely compassionate and heartwarming, I would not recommend Nasseri. He is in NO WAY cold, but he does tell you it straight...All of the nurses knew me by name, they knew about my history and treatment as did Dr. Nassiri - he didn't spend time looking at my chart during our consultations (he had already read it as he was educated on my chart)...

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ali Nasseri at Valley Hospital Fertility Center?
All of the nurses knew me by name, they knew about my history and treatment as did Dr. Nassiri - he didn't spend time looking at my chart during our consultations (he had already read it as he was educated on my chart).
Describe the protocols Ali Nasseri used in your cycles at Valley Hospital Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I am approaching 40 years old and we had 10 days of stims which had us start at 150 menapur and 150 Follistum and after 3 days, we increased to 300 units of menapur and 150 follistum.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff was top notch, they were always compassionate, warm and invited any and all questions I had during my cycle.
Describe your experience with Valley Hospital Fertility Center.
I was doing FET and there was barely any communication from egg retrieval day to the day they called me to advise how many were frozen and sent for PGS. Whether that is a product of the lab or the doctor but there was a significant drop off from what was collected to what was frozen and I wish I would have had a call to prepare me for this outcome. 12 were collected and only two made it to be frozen/tested.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Valley Hospital Fertility Center.
The monitoring appointments were fantastic whether during the work week or weekends. I never had to wait more than five minutes to be seen and everyone was super efficient and kind.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ali Nasseri at Valley Hospital Fertility Center.
Our IVF was covered but our second round of IVF was around $11,000 (excluding medicine)
